If you are interested in adopting a dog that does not say it can be homed with a cat and wish us to cat test please let us know and we will be happy to do this.

13-6-19 Focus is a very small shiba inu who has come to us from a breeder. He is a worried boy at the moment  who needs a lot of TLC. Focus only weighs 7.3kg and is extremely handsome and has a truly stunning coat. He is an utter delight and with time, love and patience is going to be a wonderful addition to a home.  He doesn't walk on a lead and will need house training so Focus will be best in a a home with at least one other dog who he can watch and copy to help him learn about being a pet.  However in the right circumstances we would consider homing him as an only dog with experienced owners who are prepared to be patience with things like house training and lead walking etc.

Poor Focus has recently been taken to the vets due to issues with his right hind leg. It was found that his patella was severely deviated. As his left leg is totally fine it is likely that this is trauma from an old injury. He has had an operation to help fix this and is now doing well. He is on strict crate rest at the moment and will need to go back in 8 weeks time to for another procedure to remove the pins in his leg. Focus is only available for local adoption as his adopters will need to take him back to his vets. Any potential adopter will need to be able to take on the cost of this procedure and any after care. If you are able to help Focus then please apply.

SO ... I don't really know this little guy very well, but I'd like to tell you all a bit about him anyway, especially as he's been at the centre for 2 months now. Focus is very handsome and has the most beautiful markings!  At 7.3 kgs he is a tiny little guy, but has the biggest personality and character ever!!! I find him very different from most dogs I've ever met before... He is a real one in a million... Comical... Quirky... UNIQUE... in the best possibly way!
He was a little wary when I first met him, but with a little encouragement and some charm, Focus started to trust me and became my friend! He is a very sweet boy who loves a fuss and facial massage, and falls asleep smiling when his face is massaged! He's a funny boy! He loves interacting with us humans, is interested in toys, and Kong's especially. I just read a bit about Shiba Inus and they are described as "often having their own ideas about things" which made me laugh and does describe Focus!
He is also very loyal, alert and affectionate - typical traits of Shiba Inus. He currently resides by himself but has been kennelled with dogs in the past but he's proven a bit too much / a bit too annoying / a little spoilt for them! Bless him. But he seems to be doing ok by himself - he's often sprawled out on his side, looking really cool, surrounded by his toys, as if to say "look at me" !
Focus is currently under Vet care because despite getting around ok and wanting to play, he has an old injury to his back right leg. His hind right Patella is severely deviated, so at the moment he is looking to be homed close to the centre because he is back and for to the vets. His forever family will need to be able to take on the cost of any future Vet trips - just like any future adopters would of any dogs they adopt. I do hope this cheeky, mischevious, hilarious, lovely, self-important but sweet Prince finds his forever family soon. He is certainly going to bring someone a lot of joy.

Spending time with this little man today has been fun! He absolutely loved his freedom in the sand today as you can see he had a great time. We started walking today but he layed down instead wanting belly rubs I had to oblige of course!!! Focus has a beautiful face which matches his personality, He is such a character and is going to make a great companion for someone very lucky!

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog. You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.

In certain circumstances and in particular when it is one of our long term stayers or a dog who is difficult to home we may transport it down the M4 as far as Reading if the adopter is not able to travel for a valid reason. This will only happen on a Sunday and will be part of our Foster Run where we transport dogs to their foster homes. There will be and additional charge of £20 transport fee for this and the adopter must be able to travel to the allocated service station. Please think very carefully before asking for a dog to be transported as if you already have a dog there is no guarantee they will get along with the new dog or vice versa and you will need to be able to hold on to the dog until the following week and meet the van again if you wish to return the dog.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
